All of us know that accidents are caused by only two things - unsafe acts or practices, and unsafe conditions. All of us even know that 9 out of 10 accidents are the result of unsafe acts, or things we do when we know better. This is kind of strange if you think about it. We have more to fear from our own actions than from any other job hazards around us. Why do we deliberately expose ourselves to injury every day?

It Won't Happen To Me
Basically, most of us are just thinking about getting the job done and we tend to rationalize the risk of getting injured. We think to ourselves that we have done this job many, many times this way and nothing bad has happened. Therefore, nothing bad will happen to us today. On an intellectual level, we realize there is a potential danger but decides that the risk of being injured is low. Because we have not been injured so far, we actually think of ourselves as being very safety conscious. We know the right way to do it, we realize that it is hazardous to do it this way, but what we are really thinking to ourselves is "it won't happen to me."

We Take Short Cuts
Some of us are fairly meticulous about following safe work practices, but because a job "will only take a minute" we use an unsafe method or tool. For example, not putting on our safety glasses because the job will only take a minute, or not locking out a machine because an adjustment will only take a second.
Usually we think about it just before we do something a little unsafe, or maybe quite a bit unsafe. We know better, we know the safe way to do it, but we take that little chance. In effect we are saying, "I know that this could result in an injury, but "it can't happen to me." Maybe its human nature to think that accidents always happen to someone else, but they can happen to you too. What makes you different?
Why take a chance in the first place? Only you can decide to take the time to do your job safely and correctly the first time.

Some of the unsafe acts

Case 1
Y’know how in cartoons, when someone has a great idea, it shows a light bulb illuminating over his head?
That is the opposite of what is going on here.
Actually, he isn't replacing a light bulb, he's (we hope) putting a new battery in a smoke alarm. If he isn't, all we can say is, "Hey, what the heck you doin' up there?" If he is, he still ought to get a ladder. Lacking a ladder, please don't be like this acrobat and take matters into your own hands or feet.
This is not an example of using your head.

Case 2

Three details in this photo say it all.
1. The worker leaning on the wooden barrier (top right).
2. The pile of construction sand pressing on the barrier.
3. The worker on the ground (bottom left).
Here’s the question: Would you rather be the worker at the top or the worker at the bottom?
I vote for neither. I also wouldn’t want to be the foreman who argued that this was fine.
